1 <br />Laura Dabe <br />Subject:FW: Tahoe Donner Marina Proposal <br /> <br />From: charlie hanson [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] <br />Sent: Wednesday, September 11, 2013 6:42 AM <br />To: Jenna Endres <br />Subject: Tahoe Donner Marina Proposal <br /> <br />Truckee Town Council: <br /> <br />I would like to state that this proposal does not have the “overwhelming support” of the Tahoe <br />Donner membership, the Town of Truckee Staff and the Truckee Planning Commission. I <br />understand that a survey was done over the Fourth of July weekend at the TD Marina. Of <br />course those select few wanted marina improvements. A member survey has not been done in <br />several years. The Tahoe Donner board of directors has excluded member input to this project <br />by taking recent discussions and strategy into executive sessions. It is unknown what the TD <br />Board of Directors is now proposing. There are no plans available other than those which have <br />been rejected by the Planning Commission in their resolution 2012-08. <br /> <br />This proposal has been before the Planning Commission three times and does not yet have their <br />approval because Tahoe Donner has not changed their plans enough to incorporate their <br />recommendations. The staff and Planning Commission have given guidance to the Tahoe <br />Donner and the basic design has had only minimum changes since it was first proposed in <br />September, 2012. <br /> <br />1. The boat launch ramp has been made smaller to allow the patio dining area to be made <br />three times larger. This does not increase the ramp safety nor alleviate boat launch traffic <br />and congestion. <br />2. The tree removal is excessive and the construction can quite possibly degrade the health <br />of the remaining trees. The ADA ramps can be designed to minimize the tree removal <br />and the health of the remaining trees. <br />3. Since this is a dusk to dawn marina there is no reason to have TWENTY TWO, TEN <br />FOOT TALL streetlights at the highest elevation of the marina. This will pollute the <br />entire Donner Lake and the Donner State Park and other nearby neighbors. <br />4. Retaining walls and ADA ramps are planned in the thirty degree slope area which is <br />specifically prohibited by Truckee ordinance. <br />5. This whole project is designed to increase the usage of the Marina. Already the traffic is <br />congested and our parking is full early in the day which requires our members to compete <br />for parking along Donner Pass Road. This suggests that there should be a traffic survey <br />done and mitigation plans be made part of any marina improvements. <br /> <br />I would like you to vote as did the Truckee Planning Commission and reject this design.
